Frogs for Strange Folk

Here are some frogs I have been working on.  They are charming little green gentlemen who enjoy extra dry martinis.  

This past weekend Joseph, Albert and I went to see his family in Illinois.  It was nice to break up our routine and drive through some peaceful farm land.  August weather has been pretty awesome so far and we were able to soak it up with some putt putt, yard golf and outdoor grilling.  I feel a little desperate now that summer is almost over.  I want to get in as many summer activities as possible before the leaves start to turn!  I went to the grocery store this morning for an emergency coffee run and there were mums for sale!  Mums!  I wanted to speak to the manager and ask her to please take them back to where they came from because I haven't been swimming in the public pool yet.  

Tomorrow I have some very exciting news to share with you.  But for now, happy Monday!

Mums are flowers that come in all sorts of colors and bloom in the end of summer. They are very Fall-ish.

I love your dolls. I wish I could make them like yours. I always pick small dolls to make. And the material like cloth or flannel is so limited in my country. I adore your frogs, they are so cool.
